The aim of the REFLEX Development Partnership, part of the EQUAL programme, was to offer practical and innovative solutions to build the capacity of local community organisations to engage in and deliver business advice. It also aimed to facilitate access to mainstream business support from business support agencies. Its main objectives were:
- To research enterprise development in black and minority ethnic communities and other groups excluded from the labour market.
- To develop programmes to increase the capacity of community organisations to promote and support enterprise.
- To develop business networks and implement good practice in the provision of enterprise support.
- To work with business support agencies to promote enterprise development in local communities, particularly amongst groups commonly excluded in the labour market.
